What do you get when you combine three favourites: pie, pizza, and dried fruit?

A Raisin and Apple Pie Pizza with Almond, Chocolate, and delectable Cinnamon Sugar Crust!  How’s that for a mouthful of goodness?

We’ve teamed up with The Good Roots to create this mouth-watering dessert dried fruit pizza.

Almond-Chocolate Spread

  • 1/4 cup almond butter (any nut butter)
  • 80g semi-sweet chocolate, chopped
  • 2 tbsps cocoa powder
  • 2 tbsps coconut oil
  • Pinch of salt


  • 2 Red apples
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup mix raisins
  • Hot water
  • 3-4 shortbread biscuit, roughly crushed

Cinnamon Sugar Crust

  • 400g Prepared Pizza dough
  • 3 tbsp cinnamon
  • 3 tbsp sugar


  1. Add the raisins to a medium bowl and hot water, make sure all the raisins are covered by the water. Let it soak for 10 minutes. Drain and set aside.
  2. Cinnamon Sugar Crust: Remove the pizza dough from the fridge and place it on a lightly floured surface, loosely cover it with plastic wrap or a clean dish towel and bring to room temperature.
  3. In the meanwhile, mix the cinnamon and sugar in a medium bowl.
  4. Preheat the oven to 200 C and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Divide the pizza dough into 4 pieces and pat the dough into 8 cm diameter circles. Roll each piece in the cinnamon sugar and place it on the prepared baking sheet to proof for at least 15 minutes.
  5. Stretch the dough balls into 13cm circles and bake for 5-6 minutes until light golden colour.
  6. Almond-Chocolate Spread: Melt the chocolate, cacao, and coconut oil over a double boiler on medium-low heat until smooth. Remove from the heat and stir in the almond butter and salt. Spread evenly on each pizza base.
  7. Pizza: Slice the apples into thinly sliced half-moons and brush with lemon juice. Fan out 4-8 apple half-moon slices on each pizza base, add the soaked & drained raisins and shortbread crumbs in between. Sprinkle with a little cinnamon sugar and bake for another 3-4 minutes until golden brown and toasted on the top. Serve warm with ice cream or fresh cream.
